We received a request from Denise to make a jumper for a newborn baby in his Daddy’s jockey colours, was this possible? Also, could I make a yellow and white peaked cap?
The baby was due around the end of March. I was sent the picture of the jockey colours and the rest was left to me.
I wanted to create a pattern that would be easy to pull on and take off for a baby age 0-3 months, so chose this one with the opening and the three small buttons. The colours as shown were white body with black bars across the front (a ‘cross belt’ according to the British Horseracing Authority) and yellow sleeves.
There was some of the yellow and cream yarn left over, so we made the shoes as a little extra. This is the bundle we sent off.
We were delighted when Denise sent this note to us:
Everyone was absolutely thrilled with the outfit you made for us, the quality was beautiful and the attention to detail right down to the gorgeous packaging was much more than we expected.
I can’t thank you enough for the patience and determination you showed to fulfill a rather special order.
The new parents were thrilled with the gift and already have plans to save it in their baby box when little Charlie (Charles William – 8lb 1oz) grows out of it.
They have promised to send you pictures of Charlie wearing his racing colours.
Once again thank you so much.
I can’t wait to see a photo of Charles William in his jumper to add to our photo album!
